Diabetes and Cancer - A Consensus Report

Epidemiologic evidence suggests that cancer incidence is associated with diabetes as well as certain diabetes risk factors and diabetes treatments. A consensus statement of experts assembled jointly by the American Diabetes Association and the American Cancer Society reviews the state of science concerning:
1 - the association between diabetes and cancer incidence or prognosis,
2 - risk factors common to both diabetes and cancer,
3 - possible biologic links between diabetes and cancer risk, and
4 - whether diabetes treatments influence risk of cancer or cancer prognosis.
In addition, key unanswered questions for future research are posed. Diabetes and Cancer Consensus Report

About Diabetes Mellitus

Diabetes Mellitus (DM) is a common metabolic disorder associated with abnormally high blood sugar levels. Diabetes is classified as either type 1 (T1DM), which is characterized by severely diminished insulin production, or type 2 (T2DM), which is characterized by moderately diminished insulin production in conjunction with insulin resistance (insensitivity of the tissues of the body to insulin). Insulin is a hormone that regulates blood glucose levels. Diabetes can seriously impair overall quality of life and may lead to multiple complications including heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure. According to the International Diabetes Federation, more than 245 million people have diabetes, with type 2 diabetes being the most prevalent.
